You will be joining an exclusive network of small business owners throughout the UK and all around the world. Not everyone has the guts, passion or determination to set up on their own. Whether it is a part-time business or full time venture. You are on the road to creating your very own successful business, and that in its self is highly commendable.
But what do you do once you have decided to start your business.
You’re a passionate cake maker but maybe you don’t belief in yourself that you are a business woman/man? Maybe you not exactly sure what steps to take first? Maybe you are feeling a little about what to do next?
But you are certain you want to create a business that you can be proud of you, that your husband/partner and children can be proud of. You want to create beautiful cakes and bring in £500 – £1000 plus per month. You want to treat yourself, family and friends.
So how do you get there!
In this fantastic early stages of business there is so many awesome resources you can tap into, the Make Money With Cakes blog is one of them, as well as our super free private Facebook group. To help you even further I have listed a number of useful websites below:
- HMRC/Gov.uk – brilliant UK website full of advice on how to set up a sole trader, register for self assessment, and more.
- Start and Grow Enterprise (SaGE) – a University of Gloucestershire project with funding from ERDF, running from August 2017 to December 2019, helping new businesses to start up and grow in the county. Open to all Gloucestershire based pre-start individuals and start-ups (trading up to 3 years) and is completely FREE! Activities include inspiring start-up events, two-day intensive courses and enterprise masterclasses, plus ongoing networking events, mentoring, resources, funding, co-working and incubation space.
- Enterprise Nation – fantastic business support online (I still love receiving their emails and attending their seminars and workshops).
